Ever wondered what it would be like to sit on a polar bear’s lap? Or ride on its back? Have you ever tried to give a polar bear a bath, or clear up its poo?

But Tilly’s not scared.The story of a little girl who befriends a mischievous polar bear, this playful, funny and heart warming tale is one of imagination and growing up.

With dazzling puppetry, delicious music and dozens of laughs, The Bear is an unforgettable experience for the whole family. So bring a bear and join Tilly on a wild and magical adventure.
